|Books waiting for a shelf - thanks to my husband for building two!|
I'm a big believer in our classroom libraries. To have a healthy classroom library, there should always be books coming in and books going out. At the end of each school year I weed the library - getting rid of about 2-3 books per student, because I want to give them to the kids. Usually this is around 200 books, more or less. Each year I buy new books, looking to fill holes that reside in the collection. In my new classroom the library amounts to about 2500-3000 books. It's an insane amount, but this is how I get them to read. They are surrounded by books.
